This took longer than planned. It turns out when they order a NMR blood test, they don't call you to come in, you're supposed to know that you're supposed to call the blood testing people to arrange an appointment. I thought the doctor has already done that, but no, we both have to call.
Anyway, after continuing to eat bacon (3 strips), eggs (3) and mushrooms sauteed in butter (3) for breakfast, avoiding sugar, wheat and simple starches, the graph now looks like this:
The tg/HDL ratio has gone from 3.64 to 2.48 to 2.07 to 1.17. So on the tg/hdl scale, I've gone from 'dead' to 'very low risk' in a few months of eating the things I've been told not to.
The particle sizes are in the 'normal' range, whatever than means. So there's a way to go before they get to the super fluffy state that the low-carbers claim is so easy to achieve.
